In Transforming Preaching, David Jackman, reflecting on over fifty years of Word–ministry offers real encouragement and help with some of the ongoing challenges and pitfalls facing the preacher. Each chapter addresses a different theme that will shape and sharpen the reader in their thinking about what it means to be a faithful expositor and servant of the Word.
David Jackman is the past President of the Proclamation Trust and the founder–director of its Cornhill Training Course. Its aim is to train and equip a new generation of Biblical preachers, which he still actively pursues in retirement, through his own preaching, writing, leading workshops and producing training materials. Previously he was the minister of Above Bar Church, Southampton.
This is vintage Jackman! Here is a wealth of perceptive Biblical and pastoral advice and encouragement to preachers. It includes helpful reminders of the need for expository preaching, and also clarifying warnings of some of the traps that expository preachers fall into.

This book draws together a host of themes and vital questions for preachers and would–be preachers, addressing them with the thoroughgoing biblical understanding and deep pastoral wisdom so many of us admire in David. … there are few whose insights are so valuable to those who would follow him in this task.
Minister, The Tron Church, Glasgow
This book is full of refreshing wisdom that is so useful and hugely relevant to my ministry. I have highlighted vast swathes of it and have already found myself putting many ideas into practice. I will keep returning to this book and sharing it over many years to come.
Assistant pastor, Trinity Church, London
… not just a book to be read once but a resource to dip in to time and time again for encouragement and correction. Perhaps best of all I found in myself a fresh vision and enthusiasm for preaching ministry as I was reminded of the ultimate purpose of preaching, which is to present people mature in Christ.
Vicar, St Simon Zelotes, London
